So, it seems that each player can exhaust characters to discard cards for the Dark Pit effect. I'm not sure if each player adds the cost of his discarded cards separately, or if all players add the cost of all the discarded cards together.

I'm not really sure how to win if the answer is "separately."

Dark Pit doesn't say "all cards you discarded", it says "all discarded cards". So you'd take the combined printed cost of all cards discarded by all players, and compare that total to Durin's Bane's HP.

This is wrong. The ability on Dark Pit is an action (Refresh Action) so, one player will do the action and resolve the entire thing before another player could do anything. "all discarded cards" is just referring to the first sentence of the action.

So in a 3 player game, you could use Dark Pit up to 3 times, each time with a separate total from each player.

This is not completly right. You can use this action multiple times per player during refresh phase as long as you have characters to exhaust and cards to discard.

Edit: Typos (I know, there are still some more of them...)

Oops, you're right.

Edit- Just so we're completely clear for Jefferson and Robin: it'd still be a separate total for each triggering of the action though. So even if I have 6 ready characters, and want to use the Dark Pit action twice, I still resolve each Dark Pit action separately, with it's own total before I or another player tries the action again.

Hope that helps.

All right! Thanks for the answers. So I need to tune a deck to knock the bloody snot out of Durin's Bane and get him down to fewer than 10 hit points... surprise
